NEWS


It's been way to long without any updates. I'm so sorry guys, I have been busy the weeks after my vacation and I spent the last two weeks with a hardcore customer service training for work so I was really happy to go spotting for the first time in 2019. It was so good to be back. Yes I work at the airport but it is something different when you go there for doing your job...

So there were no videos or any updates as I also have an overheating problem with my computer which will be solved hopefully soon.

My next spotting trip is in may. Michael and I will fly to London again.

And that's basically it...vacation was great and I have some videos for you in the making (if my PC doesn't overheat).......

Have a nice evening :)



I wish you all peaceful and pleasant christmas days, health and happiness for 2019 as well as many happy landings !

 

2018 has been a year full of excitement but also a lot of frustration. I hope I will get more time to do videos in 2019 and my goal is to improve the quality of every single video. There were some phases in 2018 where I wasn't that motivated and creative to make videos which resulted in long breaks. 

I did amazing trips this year like Madrid and Phuket as well as London to where I flew onboard the last BAW 767 flight from Frankfurt. In a few days I will fly to Hawaii where I will celebrate New Years Eve.

 

I don't want to write that much but show you the best nuggets of 2018 in a short video which will come online at 2pm UTC.

Once again Merry Christmas and HoHoHo !



You know what is crazy ? Flying to Berlin just to fly with a 747-400 before it get's stored. That journey was in late november 2017. This june I flew to Madrid in business class with LATAM and it was awesome. So my friends and I agreed that we would do this again in 2019. Two weeks ago I booked another flight with LATAM but not for 2019...for this saturday ! Michael will write his final exams in late november and he asked me if I would fly with him to Madrid before that to calm down. So this saturday we will fly to Madrid and we will come back on the next day :)

Four days later we saw a good offer by British Airways for their last Boeing 767-300 flight from Frankfurt to London...yeah you guessed right, we flew to London and back in one day with two friends and planespotters.

4 flights in 15 days, 2x business class and two great cities...

Planespotting photos from London are available on my instagram page btw !

My 767 trip report will come on in a few days from now but first let me fly to Madrid, it has been a long time without flying :D





Yes I know - another month without a new video..shame on me !

This week I will upload a new one and I will kick my ass that there will be new ones at least every second week.

 

Maybe you've seen it somewhere or read it...I don't know if I've already posted it:

I will fly to Hawaii in December and celebrate New Year in Honolulu :D

As a good friend of mine travels to Hawaii basically every year and told me so much about the Hula state I always wanted to go there. This year my dream will come true.

It will be a two week trip which will start with a flight onboard United's 777-300ER to SFO and a connecting flight to Los Angeles where I will stay for two days. Then I will depart to Honolulu on a Delta 767-300 where I will stay for five days and discover O'ahu. From there I fly to Kahului, located the wonderful island of Maui before returning for another day to LA. My flight back via San Francisco will be operated by a United Boeing 787-9, so I will fly with both new United long haul aircraft. Seven additional flights, three in 2018, 4 in 2019. Check out my myFlightradar page for flight numbers and aircraft types.

 

Have a nice week !


There were some nice updates this week for Frankfurt's flightplan. Several airlines announced changes in their operations to introduce new routes or new aircraft:

  • Primera Air will fly to Frankfurt for the first time to open a trans-atlantic long-haul base here with their upcoming 737-9 MAX aircraft.
  • Air India will open a second flight to Frankfurt departing from Mumbai with their Boeing 787-8. AI closed that flight in 2010, when they flew to FRA with their large 777-300ER.
  • Air China schedules a brandnew A350 flight from Shanghai Pudong, replacing the older A330-200
  • and Icelandair announced a 737-8 MAX operation on their second flight to Frankfurt (only active in summer) from may 2019.

Also today (08.09.18) and on september 15th, Air Caraibes will fly with their A330-300 from Paris to Frankfurt. STA is 18:15 CEST.
